Prelinger Archive Mashups

What happens when you make close to 2,000 ephemeral public domain films freely available on the Web? People make art and more films are born!

Here’s a sample of films created with Prelinger Archives footage and uploaded to the Internet Archive. However, Rick Prelinger suspects thousands more are uploaded on other video sites. If you have a video you created using footage from the Prelinger Archives, please let us know so we can include it here.

This is a new version of the film "White Zombie" available in the film section of the Prelinger Archive. The snd has been cleaned up, made stereo and enhanced. At intervals in the film fx filters are applied to add color and graphic effects. =================== This started off as a simple project to clean up the audio on the Prelinger Archives version of the classic film White zombie. As I was doing that I thought, "Why not invent a new art form?" Photography came along in...

"The Frozen Menace" is a mockumentary short on the dangers of ice-cream consumption. Ostensibly an experiment in visual and audio manipulation, the film incorporates footage from over a dozen postwar dairy production and anti-drug films to create an absurd, alternate reality where ice cream is banned for it's hallucinogenic properties. All footage used in "The Frozen Menace" was obtained from the Prelinger Archives at The Internet Archive (www.archive.org). Special thanks to...

You need to check this in fullscreen right now. Inspired by hip hop veteran Dr. Dre (NWA) and prog rock pioneers Emerson, Lake & Palmer, The Planets is the new Lyn Faber hit out of the Hoboken lab of Lyndon Lorenz. Turns out that Dre's been working for two years on an instrumental epic conceptually based around the planets. Dude: go for it. The ELP connection was a recent viewing of an amazing live performance of Pirates during their 1977 orchestral tour. The public-domain source clip for...

(Part 1 of 4) This is a historical retrospective of a history of American sexuality and culture as told through the lens of the Prelinger Film archive collection. Narrated by George Putnam (Perversion for Profit), it spins through many Prelinger film clips interwoven through their topical connections. It presents a wonderful example of a history of media manipulation and social engineering. The film winds through the narrative only for the viewer to not know if George Putnam is truly for or...

Recorded in the early 1990s in our Poughkeepsie brownstone studios, this Lyn Faber release has only been previously available on the limited cassette issue of Songs For Boys And Girls (1994). All performance and production by Lyndon Lorenz: Two tracks of electric on the BC Rich; bass on the Rickenbacker 4003; drum programming on the Roland TR707; and double-tracked vocal (miked on an Audio Technica AT41), all laid into 4-track cassette on a Fostex X30. But jeez: reworking the old tapes twenty...

Originally recorded in about 1989, this was one of the first times using my Roland TR-707 rhythm composer and Fostex X-30 multitrack cassette recorder. Two tracks of Ovation Matrix 6-string were open-air miked with an Audio Technica AT-41, and then the two vocal tracks were dubbed in through a Boss RRV10 reverb unit. 25 years later, the original cassette was remastered for digital import into Adobe Premiere, so any degradation in sound quality is proof of the analog age in which it was first...

My parody of Supervising Women Workers, a 1944 educational film which was created to decrease tension between men and women in the workplace. From Archive.org: "Management addresses the special problems of women workers with concern and a heavy dose of sexism." I use the same audio and make an instructional film about supervising monkeys.

Wonderfully crisp Music Box and a snippet of the Big Issue audio of Marian Blythe from pool.org.au morphed into a remix of sorts... combined with confronting images from historical mental health footage from the Prelinger Archives - Symptoms in Schizophrenia (ca. 1940s) I recommend you follow the link to the original footage...and read the many comments that have been posted in response to it.
